The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation is celebrating its 25th anniversary of supporting victims of domestic violence in finding safe housing.
Founded in 1998, the foundation has been working tirelessly to break the cycle of domestic violence and providing support to women and children who have experienced abuse. Over the past 25 years, it has raised more than $33 million and helped over 30,000 individuals access shelters and support services across Canada.
Through the support of Royal LePage agents and staff, volunteers, and community partners, the foundation has been able to fund various programs that provide education and resources to help prevent domestic violence. It has also established a national network of over 200 shelters and transitional housing facilities that offer vital services such as crisis counseling, legal advocacy, and childcare.
The foundation’s impact has been far-reaching, with many individuals and families benefiting from its services. One such beneficiary is Sarah, a survivor of domestic violence who found refuge in a shelter supported by the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation. She shares, “Without the support of the shelter and the foundation, I don’t know where I would be today. They gave me a safe place to stay and the resources I needed to start rebuilding my life.”
As the foundation enters its next chapter, it remains committed to its mission of supporting those impacted by domestic violence and creating a safe and supportive community for all. Its work continues to inspire and empower individuals and communities across Canada to take action and make a difference in the lives of those affected by domestic violence.
